    I finished our new side panels, capreted them and got them re-installed. I tried to go all out on enclosure for the sub. I bought some Dynamat and lined the inside of the fender with it, got some acoustic filler and put in the enclosure and made sure all the joints were sealed. I think I got a pretty good seal on the sub, because when you push in on it, it comes out slowly. The sound is awsome.

    The project would not been as successful as it is without the help of a couple of members who really know what they are doing. DBLAZER sold me the right sub and amp, and BlazinOr gave me advice on his similar install. THANKS GUYS!

    Will post pic on our web page as soon as developed.

    I plan on doing this in the spring/summer as well and I had the same thought about the last top bolt as well. I was trying to think of a good way to leave access to the bolts and not give up too much to the sound.
    Has anyone built a storage box into the side of the panel? I was thinking of putting a sub on one side and a small storage box on the other.

    There is enough room on the right side behind the spare to store a few small things. The depth behind the side panel is 3.5". As for the last bolt, it may be a bad idea on my part, but the last time we removed and replaced the top I decided to leave the bolt out since it was such a pain to remove and replace. Since I did this several months ago and have not had any problems, I didn't give it any consideration when I built the new panels. It would be relative easy to make the space accessable and still remain air tight for the sub.

    That topper blot is useless, mine has been out for years I can tell no difference with it gone. No leak or air comes in,

    The last bolt that is mounted upwards, it was a security against theft.....Mine has been out for about 7 years now
